Rally in the face of the Monster

Latino Communities Join in Battle Over Gentrification
Midtown Miami is eating Wynwood

This Thursday
January 25th, 2007
3:00 pm
At the corner of 35 ST NW 1st AVE

Miami en Acción, a grassroots group in the historic Wynwood neighborhood, is holding
a rally against the rapid gentrification in their neighborhood. Midtown Miami and
other upscale renovations in the Design District are causing a dramatic increase in
evictions and rents. The group will be rallying to 'Stop the Gentrification' of
Wynwood. The event will be in front of a public housing unit that has been vacant
for over five years. Community members and leaders will be calling on the
government to fill all the vacancies in public housing and create thousands more
housing opportunities in the neighborhood for residents. Community members will be
constructing a wall for residents to add their names to the tens of thousands
already on the waiting list for subsidized housing.



Join with Miami En Acción in fighting gentrification!

"Miami Concert Against Coal and Climate Change"

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 1st -- PERFORMERS NEEDED!
"Concert Against Coal and Climate Change"
Wallflower Gallery * starting 7 pm * downtown Miami
A grassroots alternative to the "Coaltrans America" coal industry
convention happening Jan.31 & Feb.1 on Key Biscayne
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey y'all in Miami,

So things are moving ahead pretty much on schedule with organizing against Coaltrans from my side -- it's exciting & I'm still expecting to be in Miami by this Friday or Saturday!

I talked again with Flash at Wallflower today, and confirmed with him that it'll be cool for us to hold a benefit "Concert Against Coal and Climate Change" there on Thursday night, February 1st. However he's pretty concerned (as am I, but less so because I know we're kick-ass organizers!) about the short amount of time we have to pull off this event...

So what I need from y'all now is some help finding good performers to donate their time that night. I'm open to whatever -- bluegrass, salsa, ska, fire-throwing, hip-hop, punk -- the more eclectic & fun the better to draw a crowd! Please forward this to anyone who could help ask around or might want to perform...

Also my new cell phone # is 856 535 5053 -- I'm leaving Knoxville, TN on the bus today around 6 pm & will keep the phone on tonight 'til it runs out of juice...

Solidarities & see ya soon ~
